    Hi guys,

    I've taken my Steyr apart and gave it a good clean up (Nothing lubed)
    I've been told by a few people not to polish anything up on Steyr's, Not sure why because I woudl love to polish the trigger department up!

    What else can one do to tune a Steyr in though?

    Any thoughts and ideas welcomed!

    As LSR says, Leave well alone. The weakest point of the LG100 is the firing valve. Best replaced with the later LG110 model. Ensure th action is aligned in the reciever to give smooth cocking and fully tighten up the two cap heads.

    I have the LG110 with a black firing port? If anybody knows the difference between them and could tell me that'll be great as the black ones are the better ones?

    Also why not to polish the trigger up?
    And polish the whole hammer or just the end part? springs?

    The black port was originally fitted to the 12ft/lb rifles, and the silver to the 10m rifles.

    The black port is more efficient, and gives a greater shot count with less kick.
